3.4.2021-3.7.2021. Point Reyes. California.

We are very lucky in California in that we have many options for local travel. I love going to Point Reyes because it has minimal reception, which is such a luxury nowadays and amazing nature. I am rarely on a schedule when I unplug in nature and I just drive around and stop and take pictures randomly and hike.

Hiking around Point Reyes.

Everything was in bloom!

There were lots of wildlife roaming free. I even saw elephant seals up close. They were massive at 3000-4000 pounds and made very funny noises!

When in Point Reyes Station be sure to grab pastries from Bovine Bakery. Also, pop into Monk Estate to see if anything is to your liking. Hilariously, Lazuli and I have a mutual friend in Claire Ptak!

Around the corner is also Captain Okō for more retail therapy.

3.4.2021-3.7.2021. Olema House. Point Reyes. California.

I had booked myself the Drake Suite at Olema House for the week of Christmas last year. Sadly, due to the surging COVID cases, I decided to do the responsible thing and postpone my travels. This was the soonest I was able to make a run for it. It was perfect timing as I had just delivered a big commercial, so this mental break was much needed.

There is little reception this part of Marin County and no TV in the rooms. Which was exactly what I needed. I brought a few books and finished 2. The only thing missing was a tub. But I sat outside on the swing by the brook and enjoyed the sunsets and nature.

3.4.2021. Crown and Crumpet Cafe. Ross. California.

This would be my second time leaving my tiny apartment since beginning of 3.2020. I decided I desperately needed a break away and booked myself a stay in Olema. I was supposed to spend the entire week of Christmas here last winter, but decided to postpone it to be responsible during peak COVID season.

En route to Olema, I had lunch, a high tea, with a friend at Crown and Crumpet in Ross, as they have outdoor seating. I would also recommend checking out their cakes. Many were having their chicken pot pie, which I was also eyeing. Next time, it will be the pot pie!
